Conflict of Interest? You Decide! Nancy Slutter and her lawyer husband!
Nancy Slutter is a lawyer at the Patent Office.
Her husband is Regis Slutter, who is a partner at Burns Doane Swecker & Mathis LLP, Intellectual Property Law.
Isn’t that precious that he deals in “intellectual property law” and his wife just happens to work for the General Counsel at the Patent Office.
I wonder if Burns Doane Swecker & Mathis LLP ever got favored treatment from the Patent Office based on their having a partner whose wife just happens to be part of the Patent Office’s General Counsel’s staff.
What do you think?
